Day 18 of the challenge.
Tell a story from your childhood.
One of my fondest childhood memories are the notes I would write my mother. I would write her a note almost everyday, leave it on her bed, and wait for a response. Each time I wrote, she wrote back... I would write about anything... asking to do things, telling her about my ideas, reminding her of upcoming events, recounting the days happenings... you name it, I wrote about it.
I did this for years! I remember writing her as a child, just learning how to write... I remember writing to her about shaving my legs for the first time... I remember writing to her as a teenager apologizing for getting upset or asking permission to do something I really wanted to do. I even went through a phase where I would write her notes using really big flowery language like you would find in books like Pride and Prejudice.
I have notebooks full of notes back and forth between my mom and I... now as a grown woman... they are one of my very favorite childhood keepsakes. Writing was my avenue for communication... go figure I like to write here now?
